Yesterday’s sprinkles gave way to real rain. You can just feel the tired old earth around me go “ahhhhhh.”

I woke up craving this. I must have needed an “ahhhh” too. This is lovely and fruity (love that strawberry thing) on its own, but I splashed in a little milk to see what would happen. Not much, but it’s excellent either way.

I’m thinking that if I had to make a list of “you-gotta-try-it” for tea newbies, this would definitely be on it.

The Anna’s Tea from Tin Roof Teas reminds me a bit of this. I think you would like it, too. Maybe I can send a bit your way! :)

Cool! I haven’t Googled it, but I’m gathering from some of your previous comments Tin Roof is a local-ish place?

And oh, my how the moisture was needed! Trouble is, now I’m seeing disturbing patches of green in the back yard…I haven’t had to mow since early June!

I have it ready to mail tomorrow! Yes, Tin Roof Teas is in Raleigh. Anna’s is raspberry yogurt black and soooo tasty. It reminds me of Marco Polo. Then I had their Strawberry Vanilla Green tea and swooooned. I put both in your envelope!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
